Rethinking My Weekend Plans

Given that the rapture did not happen after all the other day, I suppose I should reconsider my plans for the weekend. All the looting and booty-shaking I was going to do is probably unwise at this point, especially since it is not a foregone conclusion that my soul is damned and that I am destined to walk aimlessly through a hellish world for all of eternity. Not yet, at least.

Back in North Carolina, where I grew up, we had Easter Monday to look forward to and the traditional N.C. StateWake Forest game to help us digest the candied ham from the day before, which we were still belching up on Monday. In Massachusetts, the land of high taxes from which I recently escaped, we had Patriots Day on the day after Easter. It was dressed up to look like a commemoration of the battles in Lexington and Concord, but really it was an excuse to drink beer and not go to work.

What’s to do down here this weekend? Anything going on other than church and slow driving?

Barring the real rapture happening or the possibility that apes become our masters before the long weekend, what do you have planned?

    Tomorrow I will be in Annapolis helping with an Easter egg hunt party where the children look for plastic eggs, each holding a number. The number has a prize/gift attached, and at the end of the gathering, and dispersing of prizes, the children then spend time swapping with each other (the part they like the best.) Then, a nice dinner for them. I’ve agreed to help the hostess and do my bit. One friend gave me Peeps lip gloss, so I’ll be sure to have that with me. Flats or stilettos? Not sure yet.

    Please be sure to let me know about the flats/stilettos thing so I don’t copy your outfit. Haha.

    I understand there’s an Easter egg hunt at the Kena Shriner’s Temple on Rt. 50 in Fairfax County but I have no interest in being swarmed by kids and putting up with all that Easter stuff. Those little cars would be cool, though, and they are even going to have a Segway there brought by one of the members. Cool stuff!

    Welcome to purgatory. Roast a spring lamb and you’ll be fine. ;-)

    What is this Easter thing? As a good pagan I’m celebrating Megalesia this weekend. ;)
